The debate continues over whether Arjen Robben's diving antics make him the ultimate cheat or the ultimate professional, either way you know the strong emotions Mexico fans will feel for the Dutch winger. 

Netherlands progressed to the quarter final stages of the World Cup after a 2-1 victory over an impressive Mexico side who were beaten by a controversial 94th minute penalty by Klaas Jan Huntelaar.

Robben who had many penalty appeals turned down throughout the contest had a rather dramatic fall in the penalty area given in the dying seconds of the game and the outcry of fans claiming cheat has been rife since the Netherlands progressed.

Mexico feel robbed, they were a pleasing surprise throughout the World Cup and their fluid, attacking style won them many fans in Brazil but again they leave at the round of 16 knockout stage and their curse continues.

However, the blame for their exit can be solely pointed at a Bayern Munich winger being brandished a cheat.

The abuse Robben will endure you can expect will be monumental but I'm sure the progression of his nation will more than make up for it.

As a Mexico fan if you are to berate the Dutch star, make sure you get the right one.

One drunken fan believed he had spotted Robben and wanted to give him a piece of his mind, unfortunately for him it was Robin Van Persie he had encountered and the rant was hilariously captured on video.
